Welcome to our first ever {Chic Fashionista} post and what better way to start it off than with Lou Lou Bell, the inspiration and reason! About two months ago I was contacted by a pretty cool chickie-dee from Nova Scotia named Lyndsay who told me about her handmade purses called Lou Lou Bell.

Am I missing something here?

In a post that went up on Monday, Barbara Talisman questioned the legitimacy of a decently well-known, online charitable brand called 12For12K.
